    Just stayed one night, did not want to stay longer in kandy than necessary, so this was a good option. Chill place far enough from the noise downtown. Very comfortable stay and friendly helpful staff.

    Stayed for three nights and had a great time. We very well taken care of and the view from the balcony was awesome. Overall the rooms and other facilities were nice and clean. The breakfast was good! Location is a little off from the city but in exchange you get a much more quiet environment and an amazing view since it’s up the hill. The place wasn’t too busy when we were there, so it’s not much of a party hostel, but we met some nice people. The staff is really great!!

    Chandana was extremely helpful and I really enjoyed my stay here. Would recommend. Good beds and good showers. It is a good bit outside the city but I had a motorbike and knew this. Walking along this road into town would be pretty dangerous at times.

    Honestly style place, comfy and relaxed, staff are super helpful and the breakfast is nice. Out of the centre of Kandy (but that’s a good thing) so you’ll have to tuk tuk around.

    We stayed here for 4 nights. For 3 of those there was nobody else in the hostel. Chandana was a great host and was available to give us lifts to all the places we wanted to go to including Sigiriya Rock and for a massage and steam bath (although I think that was overpriced). Good facilities. Clean showers and toilets and able to use the kitchen. Mosquito nets and curtains around the beds which gives you some privacy. Nice balcony to sit on and admire the view. Would definitely recommend.

    Lovely host who very kindly gave us a lift into town on his way in for dinner and recommended a place where I had the best masala dosa I've ever had! Its a bit far from the centre of kandy but you can easily get a tuk tuk from the main road. The road is a bit noisy early morning so you might need earplugs if you are a light sleeper. Comfy beds and nice breakfast. Thanks for your help :-)

    A nice location as you are out of the business of kandy and can look over the hills. We had a family room which had 1 double bed and 2 single beds with an en suite attached which weren’t that clean. On the first night we had an ant infestation in the bathroom over one wall, we told the staff but they just killed them with bug spray and then left them there for the remaining time. We came back one day about 4pm and the door was locked, took about 25 mins for someone to come back and let us in.

    We got drugged by the only other guest at the hostel, and we have reason to believe that the owner also had something to do with it. Even if he didn’t, he did nothing to help us. We asked if the other guest could move to another room, because he was behaving unpleasantly, but the owner wouldn’t do this. We also told the owner about the drugs the next day, but he said it was our own fault because we had been drinking, which only one of us had. The other two got drugs in their tea without knowing.
